Sandra Chuma: morning routines, asking for help, and letting go of rigid food labels

In a world where we can pick up our phones and look at what everyone else is doing right, it’s hard not to compare yourself to others, especially as a woman of color!

Today’s guest, Sandra Chuma, has built a platform that highlights and celebrates the successes of women of color in a way that no other media platform does. In today’s interview, she shares her journey with creating NDINI, navigating insecurity and inadequacy, and overcoming the challenges of having an emotional connection to food. Sandra shares what it really looks like to sacrifice and prioritize yourself throughout the chaos of every day life. Join Sandra and your host, Robin Long, in this raw and intimate conversation.

    Wonderful episode! Learned a lot! I was wondering what the resources were that she mentioned in the podcast, there were a couple of books. Would you be able to put the name of them here?
